This domaine has been producing wine now for five generations, but it is since the present owner, Jean Pierre Charlot, son-in-law of Joseph Voillot, took control that it has moved into the league of serious wine producers. The domaine consists of 10ha of vineyards, including some prized sites in several 1er Crus. The grapes are partially destemmed and the wines matured in oak barrels (20-35% new) for 12-18 months. Without doubt one of the finest domaines in Volnay, these wines are never heavy or over extracted. They offer the fragrance, charm and beauty so typical of Volnay.
A rich, sexy, seamless and sweet-edged Pommard, showing great class and presence. In style this is showing an almost Central Otago character, such is the level of rich, ripe sweet fruit. The palate shows deep and brooding sweet red and black fruits, with a core of confiture and integrated sweet oak. The texture is sublime, heady and weighty with lowish tannins at this stage. Pure decadence!
Try with beef bourguignon or roast beef.
